Manufacturer’s Limited Warranty, Exclusions,
Customer Acknowledgement of Federal, State and Local Regulations, and Release
(Effective December 31, 2013)

The following Hanover Toolbox, Ltd. and FAB Manufacturing & Import of Industrial Equipment, Ltd. (collectively, HANOVER TOOLBOX) warranty provisions are applicable on all sales or transfers of the FAB Defense-Hanover Toolbox Line of Self Defense and Training products, including the Gotcha Cap. The term “Purchaser” means any purchaser, transferee, possessor, or user of the HANOVER TOOLBOX products.

Manufacturer’s Limited Warranty

HANOVER TOOLBOX warrants that each product sold by HANOVER TOOLBOX or any of its authorized dealers in the United States is free from defects in workmanship and materials for a period of ONE (1) YEAR from the date of purchase, as evidenced by the original receipt. In the event any state imposes a longer express warranty term than that described in this warranty document, then the state’s term will take precedence.

If a valid warranty claim is received by HANOVER TOOLBOX within the warranty period, HANOVER TOOLBOX agrees to repair or replace the product which HANOVER TOOLBOX determines in its sole discretion to be defective under normal use. HANOVER TOOLBOX’s sole responsibility under this warranty is to either repair or replace with the same product or a like product, at HANOVER TOOLBOX’s option. In the event that HANOVER TOOLBOX is unable to repair or replace the product, HANOVER TOOLBOX will refund the current value of the product at the time the valid warranty claim was made.

Exclusions and Limitations

A replacement product will have the remaining warranty period of the original product or 90 days from the date of replacement or repair, whichever period is longer. When a product is exchanged, any replacement item becomes Purchaser’s property and the replaced item becomes HANOVER TOOLBOX’s property. After the warranty period, HANOVER TOOLBOX may, at its sole option, repair or replace the product for a fee. A paid for out-of-warranty repair or replacement product comes with the manufacturer’s limited warranty. This warranty supersedes any prior, contrary, or additional representations, whether written or oral. This warranty is HANOVER TOOLBOX’s only warranty and may not be changed or enlarged by any agent, employee, distributor, dealer, or other person.

This warranty does not apply and HANOVER TOOLBOX will not be responsible for any loss, damage, or other liabilities arising from damage caused by accidents, abuse, misuse, intentional or deliberate damage to the product, or force majeure.

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THIS WARRANTY AND THE REMEDIES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, REMEDIES, AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, STATUTORY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. HANOVER TOOLBOX SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL STATUTORY OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, DESIGN, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE OR TRADE PRACTICE, WARRANTIES AGAINST HIDDEN OR LATENT DEFECTS, AND WARRANTIES AGAINST PATENT INFRINGEMENT. IF STATUTORY OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES CANNOT BE LAWFULLY DISCLAIMED, THAN TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ALL SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED TO THE DURATION OF THE EXPRESS WARRANTY DESCRIBED ABOVE AND LIMITED TO THE OTHER PROVISIONS CONTAINED IN THIS WARRANTY DOCUMENT.

The remedies provided for in the above warranty are expressly in lieu of any other liability HANOVER TOOLBOX may have. HANOVER TOOLBOX’s cumulative liability to any party for any loss or damage resulting from any claims, demands, or actions arising out of or relating to any HANOVER TOOLBOX product will not exceed the purchase price paid to HANOVER TOOLBOX for the product. In no event will HANOVER TOOLBOX be liable for any direct, special, indirect, incidental, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages, however caused, whether for breach of warranty, breach of contract, negligence, strict liability, tort or under any other legal theory, even if HANOVER TOOLBOX has been advised of the possibility of those damages or if those damages could have been reasonably foreseen, and notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose of any exclusive remedy provided in this warranty. Some local laws do not allow for the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

If any term of this warranty is held to be illegal or unenforceable, the legality of the remaining terms will not be affected or impaired.

How State Law Applies

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.

Compliance with Law

The product must be used in compliance with federal, state, and local laws and regulations. For example, state concealed carry laws can allow handgun owners, under certain conditions, to carry a loaded handgun either concealed on a person, in a vehicle, or in public. These laws also can regulate the carrying of other weapons (e.g., knives). The customer is responsible for ensuring that his or her possession or use of the HANOVER TOOLBOX products are in compliance with all federal, state and local laws and regulations.

Release

Purchaser agrees to release and save HANOVER TOOLBOX harmless from any and all liability arising out of the deployment, use, or misuse of the HANOVER TOOLBOX products, including any claims for damages and personal injuries. Purchaser agrees to assume all risks of loss and all liability for any damages and personal injury which may result from the deployment, use, or misuse of the HANOVER TOOLBOX products. HANOVER TOOLBOX is not liable for the failure of the HANOVER TOOLBOX products to perform and HANOVER TOOLBOX is not liable for any claims made by a third party or by Purchaser for or on behalf of a third party.
